The car that invented the hot hatch set a pretty high bar for all that came after it.

But its birth wasn’t easy...

The prototype was based on a Scirocco, with an EA827 engine with dual carburettors and a lowered and stiffened suspension. When this prototype was driven by Volkswagen's Chief of Research, he objected to the harsh suspension and excessive noise from the intake system and declared the car "undrivable". Nevertheless the VW Golf GTI team persevered and ended up assembling a truly special automobile.

Gunhild Liljequist was tasked with creating a set of features that would set the GTI’s interior apart from the normal Golf. Her contributions became car interior design legends: the bright Tartan plaid upholstery and the dimpled golf-ball-like gearshift knob, making this sock design sort of a no-brainer for us.
